Wells Hoping For A Dream Come True

IslandStats.com
Nahki Wells has a dream – to become a Premier League star after following in the same golden footsteps as Jamie Vardy.

The Leicester hitman came from the same humble beginnings, working his way up from grassroots football with a few quid in his pay packet.

But Vardy was rewarded with fame and riches and hailed as a champion with 16 appearances and six goals for his country.

Now Wells, 26, is 90 minutes away from Premier League stardom of his own as Huddersfield take on Reading at Wembley tomorrow in the £200m shoot-out to join the elite.

Wells has been triumphant at Wembley before with the Bantams in a League Two Play-Off Final four years ago.

He would now love it if history repeated itself and he could take another giant step on the Vardy stairway to football heaven.

A self-confessed Manchester United fan, Wells said: “Does the Jamie Vardy story inspire me? It does.

“Which is why I really believe that players like myself do deserve opportunities like that.

“Because no one would have expected him to go from being a non-league footballer to scoring 20-odd Premier League goals and playing for England in such a short space of time.

“That is the ultimate fairytale and I’m looking to go one step closer to it.

“To get my foot in the Premier League door and then to try and do what he’s done and go to the Premier League and hit the ground running.

“You know, he is a late bloomer as well. He’s doing it in his late 20s and early 30s so there’s still time for me. There are still opportunities there.

London Roberts was given the all clear to play in his first National Premier Soccer League, but he would want to quickly forget the scoreline as Boston City ran riot dispatching Roberts and his Seacoast Mariners by an impressive scoreline of 6-1 at Brother Gilbert Stadium. The win could have been by an even greater margin for Boston had it not been for some heroics from Seacoast goalkeeper, Akheim Forbes, who had a busy night and made several crucial saves.

Seacoast had their backs against the wall from the start, as Boston City scored twice in the opening 20 minutes after dominating possession. The opener came through through Jhonata Batista, who produced a hat trick on the night.

Lewis & Red Bulls II Go Down to Ottawa

IslandStats.com
In a match that saw five cautions issued and seven goals scored, Zeiko Lewis’ New York Red Bulls II conceded a late goal in the 90th minute falling to Ottawa Fury FC, 4-3, at MSU Soccer Park on the campus of Montclair State University.

Ottawa would strike first in the 14th minute as NYRB II goalkeeper Evan Louro nearly made a double-save to deny Tucker Hume, but his denial wasn’t enough.

New York responded three minutes later as Brandon Allen caught the Ottawa goalkeeper off his line on a 50/50 ball and unselfishly passed it off to Junior Flemmings who knocked it into an open net.

Red Bulls Academy player Ben Mines came on in the first half as a substitute for Lewis and nearly made an impact just before halftime with a diving header that was saved.

Ottawa would re-gain the lead in the 51st minute, as Ottawa’s Seoane would send a lofting shot over Louro’s head.

The action wouldn’t stop there, as Vincent Bezecourt would draw a crafty penalty-kick inside the 18-yard box. Brandon Allen would remain perfect on the year burying his penalty kick attempt.

Red Bulls II took the lead in the 69th minute off a powerful header from the head of Mines, his first on the year.

Ottawa would draw level in the 87th minute off a defensive breakdown, then concede a penalty kick in the 90th minute off a loose ball in the 18.

Wells - This Could be Life-Changing for Thousands
Huddersfield Town striker Nahki Wells has revealed the Town squad know just how important next week's play-off final against Reading at Wembley is for "thousands of people".

The Town squad jetted off to Portugal this week after the semi-final victory over Sheffield Wednesday to get away from the media and focus on preparing for next week's final.

But despite being more than 1,000 miles away, the Bermudian admitted the squad know just how important this match will be to all the people back home in Huddersfield.

He told HTTV from Town's Portugal training camp: "I think it was a great idea to get away as a group and continue our work process but also to spend time with important ones and family and try to keep that bond as strong as we can going into the biggest game of our lives.

"It's a great idea to get away from the press and the hype back in England.

"We all want to stay grounded and focused and together and that has been the good thing about this trip."

He added: "We understand that this could be life-changing for thousands of people from our footballing careers to our families and friends and people within the town of Huddersfield.

"It's massive. We understand how huge it is and how big it can be in a positive way if we go on to win.

"And that's what we're looking to do."

The 26-year-old has been to Wembley twice before with Bradford City and is hoping to impart some of his experience to the other members of the Town squad.

"Not just myself, but we do have some other experienced players in Hudson and Dean Whitehead who have been there," said Wells.

"I've been there twice so I'll try to bounce off any experience which I have and try to show the foreign players and local young players the importance of this and what it's like, the media surrounding it and the severity of the game to really understand what we're going to.

"But like I said, we're a really good humble group and we understand this isn't just a fun day out - it's the game of our lives.

"So we will do everything in our power to prepare right and go there and be victorious on the day."

BFF Men's Futsal League Round Up

IslandStats.com
The Bermuda Futsal Federation has kicked off their 2017 Men’s Futsal League inside the Bermuda College Gymnasium, with 20 goals scored in a double header.

The first match between Flanagan's Onions II and PHC was a game much closer than the final score suggested as PHC won 10-5. At the half, PHC led 5 - 3 behind a hat trick by Cecoy Robinson. Flanagan's Vuk Panic scored 2 goals to keep the game competitive. Although in the second-half PHC scored another 5 goals to Flanagan's 2 to win the game, Flanagan's gave PHC a hard time throughout. PHC's Robinson was their MVP scoring 5 goals with Vun Panic the most outstanding for Flanagan's with 2 goals.

The second game between Flanagan's Onions I and C-Side was an entertaining one and despite the score line C-Side had difficulty controlling the game. At the half, C-Side led 2 goals to 0. In the second-half, C-Side would add another 2 goals to Flanagan's 1 to win 4 to 1. Flanagan's controlled large parts of the game but could not convert their chances.
